Italian outlet CalcioMercato claim that if Nicolo Zaniolo is to leave Roma this summer, his preferred destination is Juventus – after reports this week that Tottenham have seen a player-plus-cash offer rejected for Zaniolo.

Zaniolo, 22, is a player on a number of club’s shortlists this summer. The Italy international has entered the final two years of his Roma deal – despite starring for Jose Mourinho’s men during the 2021-22 campaign.

Despite playing in a number of positions, and overcoming long-term injury issues, he had a hand in 17 goals during 42 outings. Zaniolo scored the winner in the Europa Conference League final over Dutch side Feyenoord.

Now, Zaniolo is a target for Spurs. Reports this week say Spurs have seen a bid of £25million plus Joe Rodon thrown back. CM give an update, stating Juventus and Milan are also keen.

They also name the club of preference from Zaniolo’s point of view. The report states that Zaniolo wants to stay in Serie A, with Juventus top of the list. He could even sign a new contract with Mourinho’s Roma.

Zaniolo preferred destination is Juventus after Tottenham offer

Zaniolo would be foolish to remain at Roma this summer. That is, after Mourinho pulled off one of the signings of the summer in Paulo Dybala on a free. Mourinho likes a 3-5-2 at Roma, and Dybala will start over Zaniolo.

So, Zaniolo needs to leave and join a side where he is going to get regular game time. At Juventus, he would get that, replacing Dybala. At Milan, arguably, he would start more games than he would not.

But the financial lure of the Premier League, the chance to work under Antonio Conte, at an English club in the Champions League, should be incredibly tempting. Rodon plus cash would be a stunning move for Zaniolo.
